Honor Flight Chicago Guardians accompany our veterans on their trip to Washington, D.C. and are responsible for ensuring their comfort, enjoyment and safety.
Guardians are designated to one veteran for the duration of their time in D.C. This allows the Guardians and veterans to get to know and build a personal relationship with each other. Many of our Guardians continue to communicate with their veterans months and years after their Honor Flight.
Guardians can request to be matched with a specific veteran. Otherwise the HFC staff will pair them with a veteran.
- In order to have more seats available for veterans on each flights, there are a limited number of seats for Guardians.
- In order to serve as many veterans as possible, we ask Guardians to pay the entire cost of their participation in the day’s events. That cost for 2017 will be $601.
